Together we can strengthen our communities. Here are some of our grant opportunities.

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) is pleased to announce a new round of partnership grants for non-profits and municipalities to engage and benefit youth (under 21) in projects to conserve, celebrate or enhance The Last Green Valley’s significant natural and historic resources or promote economic development, such as tourism and outdoor nature-based recreation.

Forestry Stewardship Funds for Landowners
The Last Green Valley is part of the Southern New England Heritage Forest (SNEHF), a 1.49 million-acre unfragmented forest corridor stretching along the Connecticut and Rhode Island border to the Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts. Bounded by more heavily urbanized areas, with more than one million nearby residents, the SNEHF has an astonishing 76% forest cover and offers one of the last viable wildlife corridors from southern to northern New England. The SNEHF is a green oasis and the last undeveloped region in the coastal sprawl from Boston to Washington, D.C.
TLGV has partnered with many organizations to bring additional funding to the region through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. Click here for current funding opportunities.
